This is link to a vintage photo of the classic Ames Room illusion:

In 1964, Barbra Streisand preented her first TV special. In this clip from that special

you'll see (at around 1:20 into the clip) a very clever application of the Ames Room principle. Barbra seems to shrink to child size!

Many years ago I posted to the Electronic Grymoire (I think--or maybe even here on the Café) a pipe dream idea of combining the Ames Room principle with the diminishing cards... except that the magician shrinks while the cards stay the same.
